Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The concepts we covered were product property of exponents, quotient property of exponents, and power property of exponents. The students are being exposed to material that they are not familiar with, which is a request from the parents. They did well simplifying expressions using the properties of exponents. They were both very receptive and confident. The students were left with problems to complete before our next meeting."
"The session went very well. We went over the student's homework problems, which involved solving quadratic equations, and we discussed different methods to use depending on the form the equation was presented in. We also did several word problems in which physical phenomena were modeled using quadratic equations. She definitely understands the material, and with a little more practice, she can gain more confidence in it."
"The student and I are continuing to work through Chapter 4 exponents. We reviewed exponents from sections 1-3. Today, we learned and worked through the properties of exponents. She is doing very well with the material. I have emailed the teacher to receive material to help her prepare to retake her previous assessments. Her confidence is improving, so we are making great progress."
"The student and I are preparing for the upcoming semester exam. I am reviewing various topics from the early part of this semester with him. I am making sure he knows the processes necessary to solve each equation algebraically. I encouraged him to practice more before the test, to help him perform as well as possible on the test."
"The student and I are still working on accuracy. He did his homework on inequalities and understood the concept very well. The only struggle we still have is getting him to check over his work. He made minor errors that would have impacted his grade, had we not reviewed the work for mistakes. He must slow down and double-check his work. That is still our primary focus."
"The student and I attempted some problems comparing individual data to sample means. We used the Central Limit Theorem (CLT) to adjust the standard deviation for individual data and estimate probability. We can come back to this topic again next time."
